Taconic Retreat would like to thank Simon Draper and Habitat for Artists for their work and collaboration between Taconic Refugee Ministries. They have provided a great opportunity for youth to develop and practice their creativity by working on the new 'Art Studio'.

as a catalyst for mutual engagement between artists and communities. The "habitats"
are small, temporary, 6 x 6 studios installed at a variety of locations. Some habitats are highly visible to the local community, while others are in more unexpected venues. The purpose is to experience art and connect with the process of artists. HFA invites artists to work in these small temporary studios. While exploring their own creative process, the artists engage in active dialogues with new audiences from that location. The public meanwhile, is invited into a new interaction and discussion about art and the artist's role as topics which are relevant to the community .
